This gorgeous pendant is absolutely distinctive in each and every way! This piece of Native American jewelry was Navajo hand crafted by artist Mary Ann Spencer, out of genuine sterling silver and a real White Buffalo Turquoise stone. The stone is delicately set in a hand cut bezel setting, creating a gorgeous tear drop shape. Twisted silver, stamped silver beads, and imprinted patterns add style to the pendant for an elegant finish. The pendant is stamped sterling and hallmarked by the artist.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.
